Homework at KS3 is given five times each a half term for both year 7 and 8. For each half term, a homework task will be in preparation for an assessment on that unit.

Homework at KS3 is based on a Menu system of homework, over each term students will have a menu of homework tasks to choose from, each being worth a specific points score.  Students should complete enough tasks to reach their target score.  For example a smaller piece of work would be worth 1 or 2 points.  A more substantial work would be worth 5 points.  Students would need to score around 12 points to complete their homework successfully.


2 homework tasks per term
